Carlito returned to WWE at the Backlash 2023 premium live event.
During the Bad Bunny vs. Damian Priest – San Juan Street Fight, Judgment Day members Finn Balor & Dominik Mysterio interfered.
This led to Carlito, Savio Vega, Rey Mysterio & The LWO coming out to make the save for Bunny.
Carlito received a thunderous pop from the Puerto Rico fans. You can watch it below:

When Carlito returned in 2021 for the Men’s Royal Rumble match and wrestled the next night on RAW, WWE offered him a deal to be a Coach in the company and wrestle occasionally. However, he didn’t take the deal.
According to insider source BWE, Carlito might accept WWE’s offer this time:
“He just might accept it this time.
Carlito has been offered a contract a lot of times, that’ll give him some TV time and stories + coaching. He kept declining all the time. But I guess it’s time he knows what’s right for him. He can be useful.”
Prior to his Backlash appearance, Carlito said in an interview with Metro that he’s open to doing anything in the wrestling business, but nobody calls him:
“Yeah, I’m open to whatever, any good offer from anywhere, it doesn’t matter. Thing is, nobody calls me so I don’t sit by the phone either.
If something comes up, great, if not I keep doing what I’m doing.”
In an update on this situation, PWInsider is reporting that Carlito was spotted in Orlando, Florida (where the WWE Performance Center is located) on Thursday and he was there for WWE related work. What exactly he was doing there isn’t known yet.
Whatever it is, this is certainly good news, as fans have wanted Carlito to be associated with WWE once again.
